Rats dribble pee all the time, and transmit Weils disease.
I would ditch the lot.
Agree with fidget. Chuck them Ed.
That's also why we shouldn't drink out of bottles in a pub, often they've been left outside and vermin have been around them. Dunno what happened to the milk bottles we had a school..
Foxhouse my apples are wrapped and stay in garage, so stay cool / cold. I have mouse bait in there and they are raised up of floor. I do check them often.
If its cardboard I wouldn't, I would just put a layer of paper on top
If its plastic I would wrap The important thing is to keep them separate so if one goes rotten, it does not spread to the rest.
Wrapping apples is ok if you have only a few to store. Try wrapping 600 pounds of them.
The temperature for storage is a bit hard to quantify, our apple store is frost free. Too much warmth just mans that they ripen up and need to be used.
I find that if I bring apples out of the store where it is cold, into the kitchen where it is warm, they ripen up and go soft very quickly.
cooking apples are a different shape to eating apples, they have a squashed appearance height wise. also they are more or less green all over.
Hmmm. All the apples on this table are cookers. The red ones are Bramley.
The tall skinny ones are Lane's Prince Albert. The little round jobs are tomatoes.
